Winter Lights & Illumination Tours
The Japanese love seasonal events and while winter may lack the colorful flowers and vibrant lush trees of other seasons, it is celebrated with decorative holiday lights that bring out the romantic of everyone who gazes at them. The Japanese borrow the English term "illumination" to refer to the act and the celebration of these light-up events and are among the most-awaited highlights of the season. Be mesmerized by the dazzling lights of Japan when you join these sparkling light-up tours.
